Later this month, Disney releases its hotly-anticipated compilation album We Love Disney, which features a slew of high-profile artists covering iconic cuts from some of the company’s most enduring films. We’ve heard Ne-Yo’s take on Aladdin‘s “Friend Like Me” and now Disney has shared another track from the collection: A version of the Mary Poppins cut “A Spoonful of Sugar” by country star Kacey Musgraves.

Musgraves preserves Julie Andrews’ famous soliloquy that kicks off the song, but doesn’t take long to heap on a hefty dose of fiddle, banjo, and steel guitar. No sugar necessary to help this one go down.

We Love Disney arrives Oct. 30 and also includes contributions by Jason Derulo (The Lion King‘s “Can You Feel The Love Tonight”), Jessie J (The Little Mermaid‘s “Part of Your World), Fall Out Boy (The Jungle Book‘s “I Wan’na Be Like You [The Monkey Song]”), and Rascal Flatts & Lucy Hale (Frozen‘s “Let It Go”).

Check out Musgraves’ version of “A Spoonful of Sugar” below.
